"Out of the way room"
Of the 5 days we stayed at different hotels/motels, this was at the bottom in all areas. We arrived late and the person checking us in, had to be woken up. The stairs to the room were loose. The room felt dirty even if it wasn't. I wouldn't recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location for our purposes"
Inside of rooms better than it would seem from outside. Room, location, people all good just in a depressed area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room had an overpowering musty smell. Room did not have new pillowtop beds as advertised. Will not stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"stayed here twice for bass fishimg tournaments"

Had my bass boat parked in the parking lot for 2 nights this last trip and no worries . If your stay on the south end of the lake i would recommend close to redbud launch ramp ,food and walmart […] for them last min. Needs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The desk clerk was very courteous and helped us by getting an enjoying room for my sick wife. The extra space and making it quiet for her was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay was deporable, with dirty rooms, front-doors that would not lock, and overall bad experience. The location was good as we were in town for business, but that was the only good thing about it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wouldn't stay there again"
The front desk clerk was not friendly; room was okay, but not as clean as it should have been.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay at Lamplighter Motel"
There was no soap in the bathroom. Arrived late and too late to go to front desk and ask for soap. Used shampoo for soap instead. Toilet paper was down to the cardboard. I had to change the roll before usage. Lights were not plugged into the wall by the bed. I did not feel like crawling under the bed to plug in the light. So you tell me how you would […] rate this place ?Did eat at Main Street Resteraunt. Very good reminded me of Sizzler chain. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was ok"
Its a clean place to stay, has running water, and its near the water. The staff are less than entirely professional, the hotel is a bit run down, and the neighborhood is pretty limited.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night stayer...."
It's not so much about the motel that is questionable, it's the condition of the lake at the end of the motel. The weed covers 30 by 30 yards, caked, baked, looks gross and smells strongly of a cow barn - offensive! Clearlake is not going through the best of times and anyone going there would know that, you would hope. Overall it was an interesting […] experience and I'm glad I did it.......

"do not come unless you are boating here."
Overpriced, good location for what? Stinky lake, day or night. Get away from here period. The hotel is disappointed and the clearlake is a waste of time to visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A lovely stay"
We found the hotel to be very nice. Our window overlooked both a RV park and the beach. Pick a south facing room if you want a beach view. I was happy with the price and the location. We were able to walk on the beach, or to a restaurant. We had a lite breakfast in the morning, which got us going. Compared to the other hotels that faced the 101, I thought […] it was just perfect.

"Decent motel for price range. Right on the lake."
Only stayed overnight while passing through. It was exactly as advertised and what I was expecting for the price point. Man at front counter was pleasantly friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lamplighter Inn, Clearlake, CA"
12/23/13 Faith R Clearlake, California
On 12/22/2013 I stayed in in room 14 at the Lamplighter and I have nothing but high praises for them. The room was immaculately clean, not a bit of dirt or dust anywhere. The decor was excellent and very "non-motelish"! The bathroom was well supplied with amenities and spotless. Other amenities included a large screen T.V., microwave and refrigerator. The view of the lake and mountains was beautiful and the price was very reasonable. There is a lovely pool and what looks like boat docks. Management was very kind and very courteous. Photos of the Inn on search sites are accurate.Only suggestions I would make would be a "peep-hole" in the door and extra rolls of toilet paper. I highly recommend this motel to anyone wanting to stay in the Clearlake area.
"Decent cheap motel..."
09/26/13 choo2drivr Olivehurst, California
This little mom and pop place was decent enough. Reasonably clean, a bit worn and shabby as should be expected considering the price you pay. beds were comfy, internet was good (and free), TV was big 'ol tube. Owners were friendly. Ice machine is unfortunately accessible to everyone, including small children and it's design allows anyone to play in the big bin of ice as opposed to filling a container by pressing a button. It is lakefront, but when we were there, there was an algae bloom going on and the water right at the motel was sort of disgusting. The beach a bit further away was fine. A good enough place for the price.

Upon arrival, we were told that the room we had booked was unavailable due to flooding -- the plumber was at the hotel. We stayed in a very small, corner room that did not have a working lock. Bedclothes had hair (head and pubic) and bathroom was moldy. Is not in a good area of Clearlake and I did not feel safe walking around after dark. Slept fully clothed in the bed and left right away in the morning!

The rooms are very old and outdated. Not very clean. The locks did not work on the room I was in. The water was not very hot for showers. The TV was as big as the bed with a 12" screen and scratchy picture. It smelled bad. I could only take one night of it. I had a 2 month job in Clearlake and there was no way I was going to spend it there.

When we asked the owners if we could borrow plates and glasses they happily loaned them to us. The room, with a very comfortable king-size bed, had a little dining alcove with a table and two chairs. We microwaved our meal and were delighted to have a table to eat from. In this lack-lustre small town this was the best and cheapest accommodation we found.

For the price you can't expect luxury but what you can expect is the management to take a little pride in their establishment. We were greeted by "Miss Personality" herself who was obviously having a bad day. The husband must have noticed and came to the desk to help instead. After check-in carrying the luggage upstairs was rather interesting because half of woodstairs felt as if they were so rotten that my entire leg would go through at any moment. The room was clean enough except for the mysterious brown spot in the middle of the bathroom floor that was to be avoided. My kids and I slept fine but my wife mentioned to me in the morning that there were people next door having a regular conversation that she could hear almost every word of so obvously the walls are quite thin. The refrigerator did not work. Perhaps it was the time of year but there is a strong smelling algae that accumulates in the little harbor next to the motel that has the aroma of a dairy farm but the view of the lake the morning we left was beautiful. If you are looking for somewhere to lay your head and take a shower without spending too much money the Lamplighter is accommodating in that respect but if you expect a continental breakfast or any sort of customer service just drive by and wave.
"Did not make the grade"
07/16/12 teralinda El Sobrante, California
Althought the room was clean and the bed was comfortable, the customer service was very negligent. There was no hot water for the entire night and next day. There is no accessible ice machine, on a hot July day! The ice machine is in their personal quarters and you have to wait outside awhile, a seeming inconvenience to them. The air conditioner/ fan stopped working and I had to get someone to fix it. The refrigerator was not working well and was mild cool. MY cooler was much colder. But the worst were the poorly designed stairs immediately outside of the office which were not properly finished, made of slate and very slippery so that someone could easily slip(me) and he was only concerned that someone witnessed this. A good part including the second floor stairs need serious attention and may be broken. Overall, I was very displeased and will do more research before looking for a good deal.

Главный критерий в пользу этого мотеля - его цена. Расположен прямо на берегу озера, что обуславливает просто невероятные толпища мошкары. Завтрака нет, номера потрепаные, ремонт просится уже давно. Ок для переночевать.
"No valla para allá"
05/16/13 mkpdl Santiago, Chile
Solamente quería pasar mi tarde de domingo junto al lago luego de recorrer el wine country. Fue una muy mala elección. El lago es pésimo, agua sucia y una ciudad muy deprimida. El hotel es fiel reflejo de la ciudad. Mal ambiente, las habitaciones anticuadas, poco limpias, las cerraduras malas, en fin... no recomendable.
